RAM Structural System: Hanging Columns

The ability to model, analyze and design hanging columns has been added to the RAM Structural System V8i Release 14.04. Hanging columns can be wide flange shapes, HSS, double and single angles, channels, round bars or flat bar shapes. The same functionality that is available for columns such as modeling, designing, viewing, etc., is also available for hanging columns. Just like regular columns, hanging columns can be sloped.
